I select the multiplayer beta option and made the shift account but it doesnt say how else to launch the multiplayer
What do you mean? In the launcher just select the multiplayer beta and then your set.
Mine does not it still says i need a shift account to proceed
Its been a year since I did this, but I think you just make a shift account here:
Then link it to your steam account and hopefully it should work.
It was pretty strait forward when I did it. Couldn’t remember any issues myself but there were people who had some trouble.
I think people miss the “link steam account” part
